What motivates me to lose weight, eat heathly, and exercise?
A few things…First, I already think I’m attractive and I want to look even better. I’m not sorry for being cocky by the way. I also want to be healthy when I get older, and the best time to make that happen is now. I’m looking toward a career in health, hopefully doing what I do now, which is writing about it and motivating others, so it only makes sense to practice what I preach. Finally, eating healthy and exercising feels amazing. It gives you a natural high, gives you something to talk about, and it can become a hobby and a passion.
What motivates my followers? Here are a few of my favorite tweets.

Thanks for all the tweets. Whether it’s because of your family, your health, your looks, an upcoming event, or for self-confidence, find your motivation and remind yourself that’s why you’re doing this each day. Oh and by the way, I’m glad none of you said it was to get a guy, because that’s foolish. Do this for yourself, and don’t get discouraged when you hit roadblocks. Your motivation will guide you.
